One of the questions we often encounter is - why are we creating iChatBook? The answer is simple yet profound - we want to create a platform where children can tap into the collective wisdom of the world's greatest authors.
While the New York Times bestsellers list is a well-known barometer of literary success, it doesn't necessarily cater to a young audience. Children, the primary consumers of kids' books, are not the ones making the purchasing decisions. Hypothetically speaking, if children were the ones buying, they might choose an entirely different set of books.
The divergence in preferences between children and adults may be attributed to several factors. Firstly, children and adults have different interests. While there are areas of overlap, children are naturally drawn to themes and narratives that speak to their age, experiences, and curiosities.
Secondly, adult literature often employs complex language and nuanced concepts that can be challenging for a young reader to comprehend. The adult author's eloquence and articulation, while appealing to mature readers, may render the content inaccessible to a child.
That's where iChatBook steps in. We distil the essence of these books, making them accessible and appealing to young minds. By presenting the content in a podcast format, we offer children the opportunity to learn and explore new ideas without any screen time. This approach not only aligns with the growing trend of minimizing screen exposure but also aids in honing children's listening skills.
Our channel will feature engaging discussions with fictional characters who will summarize and interpret these books in a way that resonates with children. So, get ready for an exciting journey as we bring the world of literature to life for our young listeners. Stay tuned!
